Bye, Bye Mosquitoes: These BK Neighborhoods Will Be Sprayed Next Week

The best way to avoid mosquitoes is to clear any standing water around your home -- and failure to do so is actually a violation of NYC health code.

From ABC7NY: 

Mosquitoes be warned: New York City says your days are numbered.

The city's Health Department plans to spray sections of the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island with an aerial larviciding treatment next week. 

The spraying will occur on June 8 and June 9 (Thursday and Friday), as well as Monday, June 12, from 6 a.m. to 7 a.m., the Health Department said. The aerial application is aimed at killing young mosquitoes before they grow into adults.
